A dark story of punishment for those who don’t want to eat their soup. Two siblings sit at the table and struggle to finish their soup, watched by their grandfather. They scoop the soup up reluctantly, looking for ways to break free from the table. When the door opens and bright light hits the room, the children run out and find themselves in a completely different reality. Here, in the empty streets of a nameless city, every single step unfolds a nightmarish landscape. A modern story of crime and punishment.
